Who Is Alec?
Did you know that other than Barristers and Solicitors there are other lawyers? Cost lawyers, Conveyancers, Trademark Attorneys are also types of lawyers that practice law in England & Wales.
Alec is a CILEX Lawyer (Chartered Legal Executive Litigator & Advocate) and like Solicitors, he is authorised to conduct litigation in all civil proceedings and has the same right of audience as Solicitor.
He decided to practice law after finishing his History degree but instead of taking the conventional route (Graduate Diploma in Law and then the same training as Solicitors) he opted to become a CILEX Lawyer, which would allow him to enter the legal system and learn whilst he studied law.
Alec qualified as a CILEX Lawyer in 2017 and obtained practice rights in civil proceedings in early 2021. In addition to acting for clients in both personal injury and holiday sickness claims, Alec is also a self employed advocate for Quest Legal Advocates. He is regularly instructed to appear in Court for other law firms instead of Barristers.
